DrainsAid secures septic tank asset management deal with Network Rail
DrainsAid, the specialist drainage and sewer rehabilitation division of Peter Duffy, is to manage the septic tank assets on the London North West (LNW) route having secured a two-year deal with Network Rail.
The company will help the railway maintenance specialists with planned and reactive drainage services for Network Rail assets throughout the region, including sites in remote and challenging locations. Without the benefit of mains drainage, septic tank maintenance is critical for the welfare of Network Rail staff working at the sites.
Jason Monaghan, sales manager at DrainsAid, said: “We have been selected to provide this important service largely due to our asset management approach and the use of innovative field-base technology which allows our engineers to provide real-time reporting and photographs. Our key priorities are to provide a safe well-managed service which reduces unnecessary costs and minimises potential disruption to train services.”
DrainsAid’s use of the latest mobile field-base technology means the septic tank service is managed much more effectively in comparison to previous methods. The company invests in a lot of innovative industry technology, including the new M-Coating manhole rehabilitation system which alongside the mobile field-base technology has attracted a lot of interest from existing and prospective customers alike.
Monaghan said:“It’s crucial to our future success that we keep investing in ground-breaking technology to ensure that we can provide our prestigious client base with market-leading drainage services. Engineers are extensively trained on new equipment, and what’s more, all engineers and supervisors involved with our rail industry works have the Personal Track Safety (PTS) training, a safe working practice designed to ensure the safety of railway workers and those who have to work on or near a railway line.”
